Personal Banker II Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Wells Fargo.

Interview Details

Applied online and within 2 day got a response for a phone interview with the recruiter. Very basic questions( past baking experience, goal, results and why you were looking for a change). Next step was meeting with this branch manger. I met with the manger about 1 week later. I showed up 10 minutes early only to wait about 40 minutes in the lobby ( no big deal) however the manger must have walked by me 10 plus times and never introduced themselves( no big deal again).
In was finally brought in for the interview with the manage and district manger.
Interview was about 2 hours long. Questions were perry straight forward( what would you do, how would you handle this situation.) What I was not happy about is how they were asking me questions about the current financial institution I worked for. The questions were extremely unprofessional to ask during an interview and I was extremely uncomfortable. After leaving I was told they would be in touch.
I sent a email thanking both for the time and interview. About 3 weeks passed and I did not hear anything so I assumed I did not get the position. I placed a follow up email and call and still nothing. 5 week later I the original recruiter called me saying I got the job but not the position I interview for. They explained a internal employee got it. I was ok and happy as I believe you should promote within. Overall I was not happy with the interview process and the unprofessional management.

    Very easy. Group setting, team exercises. If you are even slightly motivated you can shine as a group leader to get the exercise done. If you can take the pre exam for the series 7, this will work in your favor if you do well.

    You fill out an online application with a background screening test. A recruiter calls you almost immediately and does a general interview about your background and why apply at Wells Fargo. If you pass that, you go on a group interview. If that's successful, you will then be sent for an interview with a branch manager. Good luck!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wells Fargo in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the Personal Banker II (registered) position online, about a week later I received a call to set up a time for a phone interview, which was completed with a recruiter the next day. She asked 1 or 2 very basic questions along with just sharing with her some of my past work experience and why I was looking for a new job and why Wells Fargo. The phone interview took approx. 20-30 min. and then she informed me that she would submit the information and someone may reach out to me in the next 1-4 weeks. ( I wasn't thrilled with this non-descript time frame.)

     About a week later I received a phone call to set up a 1:1 interview with a regional vice president. Had a good conversation, then she pulled out a set of interview questions that are standard for Wells Fargo. She explained how Wells Fargo described each different quality then asked a question and asked me to explain a experience using the STAR (situation/task, action taken and results) method. 5 days after the 1:1 interview I received a phone call with a unofficial position offer, assuming that my background checks came back clean.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Wells Fargo in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a Sunday and was called the following tuesday by the recruiter. I was emailed a 2 page document to complete regarding my experience and ask to provide 2 examples of my best sale, and one that I was most proud of. I completed and sent that back to th recruiter the same afternoon. Within a hour of doing that I was contacted to set up a group interview with another recruiter a day later. I went down to the main building and myself and 2 others met the recruiter who basically explained the position and showed us a brief video of the job and what was to be expected. She talked about the merger of Wachovia and took us for a short tour of the training area and that was it. This lasted for about an hour, and we were told they would contact us if we were considered for the position.

    About 2 hours later I received a call to meet with the district and branch manager for another interview a day later.

    At this interview a STAR questionaire format was used to ask me questions. "STAR" stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result. I had to provide examples of my sales experience with customers using that format.

    Now I am waiting for an answer.
